Communications Slang Dictionary (CA12055E)


This is your copy of the Communications Lineman’s Slang Dictionary, compliments of Hubbell Power Systems, Inc. It has been prepared to help familiarize you with some of the jargon used in the communications industry, particularly that of the linemen. We are sure you will find it informative as well as entertaining. These terms have been compiled from across the country. However, we find no regional connotations of these slang terms. But in an effort to keep this literature politically-correct and G-rated, we have chosen not to include certain slang terms with provocative phrasing. We want to hear from you. If you know of additional slang terms not appearing in this edition, we would welcome your ideas! You may submit your suggestions either on line or by regular mail. See the last three pages of this book for how easy we’ve made it.

We hope you find this booklet easy and enjoyable to read as well as being a useful and important asset to you!
